Re: Remington bolt handle failure
mine came off last year when i had a warm load and i smacked up on the bolt with the palm of my hand.my smith fixed it when i took it in. the factory solder was piss poor.he said the trick to a good silver solder was to heat the handle to a light red color and wire brush to remove the silicon from the surface of the metal. this will make the joint very strong.
NO, you can't take another bolt and use it in your gun.it's a headspace thing.might work fine...might be dangerous.
